General question to everyone: do you have an alt? If so, did you have to create a "real" e-mail to sign it up or could you create one of those temporary ones?
Robot Day hasn't been ALL of what I was expecting. There have been some nice submissions, but I think not everyone was that aware of it. I've seen some submissions "made in a few hours", which could have been great. And no flashes from MindChamber so far. =/

Coop prepares to launch a new list...Awesome list, nice job. I plan on joining it in some distant date. :P
Keep looking then - I don't expect writing many reviews soon enough. :P
And for the lulz, LA is reportedly out again.
LA's out of the talks. My money is firmly back with the Devils....And LA is back in the talks. I haven't heard anything on the Islanders' or on the Devil's side, though.
Meh, he'll just end up without a team then. What a prick. >:(

Lol XDSure, I guess we won't talk about it for a pretty long time then. :P
I'll never let you hear the end of it until Brazil beats Holland again ;)
Have you ever seen A Clockwork Orange? Imagine something like that, but with Holland - Brazil over and over and over again ;)
Heh, unfortunately not yet. But I've seen that scene a few times already... and NO, I cannot stand watching Felipe Melo stomping Sneijder again! :(
You know, I think he only played decently when he was in Manchester United. He isn't that much of a player, in my opinion. He just has a prettier face than the majority.Yeah I think his popularity among women is mostly what helped him become a superstar. At Man Utd he was okay, but still a whiner. I think the only time I liked him was when he still played at Sporting Lisbon and was just about to make his major breakthrough.
I mean, look at this guy! How can he become a superstar? :P
I only kept up with him when he was already in Manchester Utd. so I don't know much about his carer on Portugal. He must have been a really great player back then, though, since he was hired by one of the most important football clubs.
Lol :p Yeah one own goal and one red card... I bet he didn't sleep well that night.
Exactly. Thinking over this again, he played really well, actually.
No I wouldn't blame a particular player, although Melo wasn't playing the best match in his career ;)

Against Brazil. >:(
Yeah, he might have been thinking - "Man, what am I going to say when I get home?"
PS: He wasn't really well received in his arrival here. Talk about a bunch of bodyguards around him + people willing to throw things at him. :P
This is what my mother said while we were watching the game - "We need a 2-0 before half time, then things will get more controlled." But we didn't put more pressure after the goal, much on the contrary, we fell back! Hey, it's a quarter-finals match, it's do or die! Don't hold back! :(Yep, I guess they were going for the "make a quick 1-0 and keep defending" strategy. Doesn't work against Holland, you gotta prevent them from getting in control instead. I think Spain might be able to do that, but Holland might be able to do the same to Spain.
Yeah, that's an issue. You can play defensively against an offensive powerhouse that is Holland, Germany, Spain etc... You have to attack more and more, expose their defences to risks. It's how you usually win a match - attacking.
The final is probably gonna be interesting. Might come down to which team is more efficient, and so far that team has been Holland.
I hope so. I really don't want Spain to win this one.
They have the octopus on their side, though. =(
And now there is the coach issue. Dunga was "fired', along with all the coaching department. Who will take this pineapple?Yeah it's always hard to bring a team back to the top when they performed like that. Just look at France. Although quarter-finals is still not bad though ;) Sure it's less than Brazil had hoped for, but most countries are satisfied if they end up there.
Sure, but it's that "we have to win everything" spirit. Also, he was really contested for not bringing Ronaldinho and some other younger players that could've made a difference.
But it's that same old story: if they win, they're heroes. If they lose, they're villains. No one would be saying anything if we hadn't lost that match.
That would be a waste.
Haha :pAt least our TV is safe. We wouldn't throw a HD TV in a loss, would we? :P
And hey, due to that TV, my dad is thinking of buying a PS3, since it's also a Blu-Ray player. Isn't that great? ^^
And maybe it was our 15th loss in a world cup. We had only 6 losses with Dunga as our coach. And that 6th one came at the worst time possible. :(Yes it was probably WC losses. Now that I think about it... maybe it's not that impressive since Italy and Germany must have only a few losses more so far =/
Yep, Italy has 15 losses too and Germany is at 20.
Remembering that we have 15 losses, but we are the only country that has been to all the world cups. :)
Okay, but don't expect quick replies from me ;)

Finally here they are: Sir-Nuts replies from two weeks ago, part 1Read, but postponed to tomorrow, possibly. :P
Sure, no problem.
What a month, right?You might even say: "What a week!"
Now to cherry the cake, Netherlands beating Spain!
...And hopefully the rest of the month as well. ^^
I'm happy with them getting to the finals already, but winning it would be fantastic ^^
I'd be happy for them too. Anyone but Spain, please.

Well, I wouldn't have said they were that bad in the first place - the face that they've fallen apart now can only be traced as far as teams like Leeds United. They dropped down a massive amount and are only just starting to come back.Yeah I guess that shows what an influence that guy had. It's still strange though how a club can climb all the way to the top of Europe and then fall back to the 2nd division again. You would say that they would then have the money to keep a good team and attract more good players.
We have a few similar cases here as well. The are two clubs that I remember that won the national title in the 80s with a pretty great squad, but are on the 3rd division now. I guess time really makes a difference in sports...
